Abstract: MATWRAP is a collection of derived types and generic subprograms in Fortran 95 that implements matrix operations and computes matrix functions and decompositions. Although MATWRAP is not based on a formally defined matrix language, the results of using MATWRAP are akin to coding in a subset of a matrix oriented programming languages like MATLAB, OCTAVE, etc., but with the potential computational advantages of a compiled language. By using routines from LAPACK and the BLAS, MATWRAP allows the user to obtain the benefits of these packages with minimal fuss and bother. This talk describes the structure and capabilities of MATWRAP, with illustrative examples.
